Number 88 – Dreadball MVP


A model representation of an entity of uncertain species and gender for use in Dreadball.  This enigmatic player is named “Number 88”.

The model looks a little bit like a Power Ranger (Lightspeed Rescue with a visor like that), a franchise often associated with pink, but I painted the model pink because I like painting pink.

It turns out that Number 88 is one of the more effective MVPs in Dreadball, with a kung-fu master like, judoesque ability in game.  88 fights all opponents at their own level, plus one.  The figure was painted quite fast and looks kinda cool anyway I think.  There is something amusing about a skinny little s/he dressed in a pink onesie that can beat up the toughest things that the game can throw at it.

88 is titchy even by Dreadball standards.
